Abby Lee Miller, the controversial dance company founder who stars on the Lifetime reality show “Dance Moms,” was sentenced to one year plus one day in federal prison in her bankruptcy fraud case.
People reports that Miller’s prison term is to be followed by two years of supervised release. She was also ordered to pay a $40,000 fine and a $120,000 judgment, and is required to give a DNA sample relating to her felony charge.
“While it remains to be seen how much of that sentence Miller, 50, will actually serve, multiple sources tell People that she will realistically face 10 months in prison, followed by a stint at a halfway house,” the publication notes.
The People report adds: “In October 2015, Miller was charged with attempting to hide $775,000 of income from her Lifetime series and its spinoff, ‘Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition,’ as well as multiple other projects during Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings. She allegedly hid the money in secret bank accounts between 2012–13.”
